picture story dated Jan 24 1949 shosved SIU students using the floor of the gymnasium to fill out registration forms for winter quarter 120 girl students crowded into Anthony Hall which had been built for 72 a botany laboratory used 13 hours a day and workers swel tering in the basement of the old Wheeler Hall libraryremoving books for storage because the building had been condemned Also pictured were eight former jrivale homes and a store build ing in use for purposes ranging om the agriculture department headquarters to a veterans com mission office 15 houses just university were By Ben Gelman Of The Southern Illinoisan A visitor to Southern Illinoi University today sees three kind of buildings old ones dating fron 18871928 new ones built from 194 to the present and temporary buildings which somehow seem ageless It is this last category abou which the visitor is usually mos curious Some of the temporary struc tures are private homes whicl have been purchased by the uni versity within the area which wil eventually be an integral part o the campus The others are mostly surplus Army barracks used either singly or in groups for offices class rooms and dormitories There also are a metal quon set hut east of the gymnasium used for wrestling practice judo classes and other physical educa tion activities another building of the same type used by the agriculture department and mis cellaneous other structures It has been said facetiously that university officials keep the barrackstype buildings around to impress visiting legislators with the need for new construction on campus In fact SIU officials have tried to retire these unsightly structures to the scrap heap But increasing enrollment and expansion of uni versity have so far out stripped new construction that all available space in the barracks and in the former private homes has always been in use Not New The problem of retiring tem poraiy quarters at SIU is not 112w When Old Main was rebuilt on he site of the original burned auilding in 1887 the frame build ing which housed the school from 188487 was not immediately torn down The structure which stood ap proximately where Altgeld Hall now is located was used for years as a gymnasium and for drilling the Douglas Corps equivalent in those days of theto maintain full employment many new buildings there were 87 of these resident houses list ed in the universitys financial re port All were in use except for a few which were about to be torn down to make way for permanent In addition bought by the shown These were all scheduled o be used for classrooms offices and to house other SIU activities In 1952 according to SIU Presi dent D W Morris 21 erstwhile residences were in indispensable iniversily service Among the enants were the new psychology department and the departments of journalism health education brtrign languages and music As of June 30 1961 in spite of Job Training rvM i Bill Signed Washington March 15 AP President Kennedy signed to ay legislation which will permit raining up to a million unem loyed workers for new skills The threeyear millioiV pro ram is designed to help both structures Eight more were listed as having been torn down during tiie previous year The barracks era at SIU started when the university pur chased 27 surplus army buildings from Camp Ellis for in 1950 The first nine were set up in the Dowdell area east of the Illi nois Central railroad to serve as the first mens dormitories oper ated by the university They are still in use for the same pur pose Still In Use The next still in use served as an addition to the cafe teria two spaech department classroom buildings a little thea ter offices for the purchasing agent auditor business manager registrar statistical services placement service and two build ings for the department of busi ness administration The only change made 5n 12 years have been that the cafeteria was moved into the new Univer sity Center and the space re renovated for the Data Process ing and Computing Center and one of the speech barracks 5s being used as headquarters for the RadioTV Department and Broad casting Service Many other

cine to protect humans againsl cancer has begun Today 120 pereons between Hie ages of 60 and 70 in Sweden form he first test group but if all goes well perhaps 12000 persons may receive experimental vaccine be fore 1965 So reported Dr BertU Bjorklund of the Immunojogical Research Laboratory in Stockholm to news men after the dosing session of the American Cancer Societys science writers seminar The vaccine consists mainly of bits of killed cancer cells actually humancells that have become ab normal In the healthy body thesecell fragments will stimulate produc tion of protective substances that tend to inactivate germs and viruses Then should a human cell be come cancer Bjorklund expects t h e antibodies will recognize the can cerous coll inactivating il The antibodies also will release from its natural state iff the hu man blood a cell killer which will destroy the cancer Of the 120 persons in the tfist 100 are receiving the experimen tal material Each of five groups of 20 is getting a different numoer of doses One group of 20 is Dot receiving any dose but is being checked to see the normal level of antibodies If the proper dosage is deter mined perhaps as manw as 12noo persons will be tested nest year with that dosage Then if results are good with this group the next year perhaps as many as 12000 in the 60 to 70 ige group would be given the ma erial and another 12000 persons selected as a control or untreated group use including those in the Chau tauqtia housing area Altogether the university has over million tied up in tem porary buildings including origi nal investment and sides the resident houses ment ioned above The total investment for both types as of June 30 1961 was When the temporary facilities will be retired is an open ques tion The Carbondale cam pus building program with build ing bond funds and some mil lion worth of housing facilities now under construction and sche duled for the next five years will undoubtedly ease the situation Still Holds True But a statement made nearly 10 years ago by Morris holds true almost as much today as it did then Too much emphasis can scar cely be placed on the importance of this temporary building space Without it the university could simply not have performed many of the services which are vital to its standing and usefulness New departments which were ser iously needed could not have been organized and many offices dn partments and agencies over crowded to the point of serious inefficiency could scarcely have continued to operate It is by no means true that these makeshift arrangements solve Southerns space needs The buildings we have simply permit us to continue NOW how long they tvill serve one can but guess Only permanent structures can solve our space

agreement here to end all such tests under strict con trols Rusk replied that the present conference was born amid the echoing roars of more than 40 So viet nuclear explosions last fall and that the Soviet Union in view of its record was one of the least qualified of nations to criticize the United States Rusk and Gromyko presented sweeping and detailed plans for disarming the world The stated aims were the same But the methods differed so sharp ly as to revive at once the old shadow of deadlock which has hung over all disarmament nego iod Rusk Asks Cutback Busk called for a 30 per cent cut
